No further immigration checks, you will be landing in a domestic terminal in the U.S. so straight out of the plane to collect your luggage and leave the terminal.easyguy wrote: ↑Tue Dec 11, 2018 11:18 amThanks max307, this makes sense.
I haven't booked my flights yet, I was about to do that as my travel is for work related purposes so need to confirm soon. A colleague of mine is travelling from London, so plan was to travel together.
I'll check if I can fly through Dublin. If immigration is cleared in Dublin, will there not be any further clearance in US?
Also do you think the fact that I couldn't be specific on the When question for previous refusals i.e. the dates where I only put 2007 and it not being clear if it's twice or once, could be any concern?
Thinking about it now, on the hindsight I could have put "Twice in 2007" but also I think the key question is if I had a refusal previously, yes or no. To which I confirmed yes and also on the initial section of the form I listed all previous passports etc, so I thought they would know the exact dates etc as it would come up on the system? 11/12 years is a long time, can't remember dates for sure :/
Where my ESTA went on PENDING AUTHORIZATION, I was guessing this was approved through manual intervention and not automatically by the system. Guessing, no one knows how this works.
Thanks again for your suggestions and advise on this.
I honestly don't know because I don't have any previous refusals so always entered "No" in that question.Cf_firefly wrote: ↑Tue Feb 12, 2019 10:12 amHi @easyguy and @max307 ,
I have not started the application for ESTA Yet but i think I am in somewhat similar case . I cant remember the reason for my refusals of my Visas and cant seem to find the documentation as its 16 Years ago and other 13 yrs ago .
My case is I am British now and want to apply for ESTA but i had previous 2 refusals as below on Indian Passport :
1. In 2003 , i was refused Student Visa from Chennai Consulate , India . Cant remember the reason . It could be i was refused under Potential Immigrant category . I am not 100% sure .
2. In 2006 , I was refused H1B Visa from London Consulate , UK . Cant remember the reason .
Do we need to mention the reason why Visa was refused when filling the ESTA Application ?
